Michael Gage commented on Robert Karp's blog post 'Jesus Was A Liberal Democrat!'
"I would caution you to avoid making the same mistake that Christians do everyday by assuming that Jesus would agree with some common practice in today's terms. Jesus was not a Republican or a Democrat - both would have seemed quite foreign to…"

"I think one issue that's implicit in the discussion here is that something like "atheists have no morality" ought to be considered a conclusion requiring premises and definitions. It doesn't sound like your friends offered any…"

"I can say a few general types of responses you would get based on my own conversations. I'm not overly impressed by any of them. They will say God isn't really sending your cousing to Hell. Rather, he chose to go to Hell. Catholics may…"

An Atheist Parable

The Great King A boy of nearly six lay weeping on the side of the road. His father, face down in the mud beside him, had just been slain. He was unable to pay the taxes required by the local governor. He pleaded with the collectors to spare his life, as he had no money with which to pay them. This was not their concern. The man was killed; the debt passed to his son. A woman who witnessed the event came to comfort the boy. “I know this is hard for you to understand now,” she said, “but the King…See More

Contra Genesis

The creation account in Genesis is quite obviously a confused myth. However, there are a very large number of people who still believe in its literal truth. Here are three short, simple arguments for those people. 1. Adam and Eve did not deserve their punishment.Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:“Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it all the…See More

Beth commented on Michael Gage's blog post 'Historical Method: Are skeptics committed to a double standard?'
"This is an interesting topic when one considers that some countries still lie about the facts per WW2, Viet Nam war, Iraq/Afghanistan.  Thus I  think history is ripe with folks who want what they believe, not what is true, to be the…"

Historical Method: Are skeptics committed to a double standard?

Posted on September 9, 2011 at 1:21pm 2 Comments

This is my first post in a planned series on the Historical Method. I will discuss general topics and areas of tension between conservative biblical scholars and skeptics. This series will include discussions of authorship, dating, and general reliability. My focus in this first post is the question of whether either group—the skeptic or the theist—is committed to a double standard regarding ancient texts.
